David Stevens, a Linux user and Phoronix reader, had written a letter to ATI/AMD expressing concern over their lack of providing an official free software driver. David had asked this letter be made openly available and shared with our readers. You may share your thoughts on the fglrx driver and ATI/AMD's lack of an open-source driver in the Phoronix Forums.

Once again I know I am leary on going down the AMD path. I know it is coming a time soon where I will need to upgrade my workstation. AMD does have great processors and would love to more than ever experience that AMD love.
The catch to this is. the base of those AMD Chipsets will be ATI from what I can gather. will this be the same for the workstation chipsets? will Nvidia be left out in the cold when Barcelona comes in Q3? With the lack of support for functional drivers for motherboards and Graphics cards. I am going to have to research and hopefully AMD/ATI gets something done about this issue.
